Request for Certification of Compliance-Rural Industrialization Loan and Grant Program, 54298-54299 [E7-18708]

Download as PDF 54298 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 184 / Monday, September 24, 2007 / Notices rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES registration has therefore remained in effect pending the issuance of this Final Order. See 5 U.S.C. 558(c). On August 19, 2005, the Secretary of the Florida Department of Health issued to Respondent an ‘‘Amended Order of Emergency Suspension of License’’ (hereinafter, State Order). The State Order alleged that Respondent had prescribed drugs including controlled substances ‘‘other than in the course of the physician’s professional practice.’’ State Order at 23. The State Order further alleged that Respondent had ‘‘inappropriately and excessively prescribed controlled substances * * * to six undercover agents without performing adequate physical examinations of them; by repeatedly prescribing controlled substances to these patients without ascertaining the etiology of their pain; and by prescribing controlled substances to the patients without medical justification.’’ Id. at 20. The State Order further alleged that ‘‘[o]n or about August 16, 2005, the Circuit Court for Brevard County, Florida issued an arrest warrant for [Respondent] based on charges of trafficking in hydrocodone over 28 grams in violation of [Fla. Stat. § 893.135], and unlawful distribution of controlled substances in violation of’’ Fla. Stat. § 893.13. Id. Relatedly, the State Order alleged that on August 17, 2005, Respondent was arrested by officers of the Melbourne, Florida Police Department. Id. The Order thus concluded that Respondent’s ‘‘continued practice as a physician constitutes an immediate serious danger to the health, safety, and welfare of the public,’’ and ‘‘immediately suspended’’ his Florida medical license. Id. at 23–34. According to the online records of the Florida Department of Health, the emergency suspension order remains in effect. Moreover, according to the online records of the Brevard County Clerk of Courts, on July 17, 2006, Respondent was charged with two counts of trafficking in illegal drugs, a violation of Fla. Stat. § 893.135.1(c).1.C, and a first degree felony under Florida law. The criminal case remains pending. Discussion Under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), a practitioner must be currently authorized to handle controlled substances in ‘‘the jurisdiction in which he practices’’ in order to maintain a DEA registration. See 21 U.S.C. 802(21) (‘‘[t]he term ‘practitioner’ means a physician * * * licensed, registered, or otherwise permitted, by * * * the jurisdiction in which he practices * * * VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:43 Sep 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 to distribute, dispense, [or] administer * * * a controlled substance in the course of professional practice’’). See also id. § 823(f) (‘‘The Attorney General shall register practitioners * * * if the applicant is authorized to dispense * * * controlled substances under the laws of the State in which he practices.’’). DEA has held repeatedly that the CSA requires the revocation of a registration issued to a practitioner whose state license has been suspended or revoked.1 See Sheran Arden Yeates, 71 FR 39130, 39131 (2006); Dominick A. Ricci, 58 FR 51104, 51105 (1993); Bobby Watts, 53 FR 11919, 11920 (1988). See also 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3) (authorizing the revocation of a registration ‘‘upon a finding that the registrant * * * has had his State license or registration suspended [or] revoked * * * and is no longer authorized by State law to engage in the * * * distribution [or] dispensing of controlled substances’’). As found above, on August 19, 2005, the Secretary of the Florida Department of Health immediately suspended Respondent’s state medical license and that suspension remains in effect. Respondent is therefore without authority to handle controlled substances in the State in which he is registered and is not entitled to maintain his DEA registration. Order Accordingly, pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f) & 824(a), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b) & 0.104, I hereby order that DEA Certificate of Registration, AW2834528, issued to David W. Wang, M.D., be, and it hereby is, revoked. I further order that any pending applications for renewal or modification of such registration be, and they hereby are, denied. This order is effective October 24, 2007. Dated: September 14, 2007. Michele M. Leonhart, Deputy Administrator. [FR Doc.
